As a result of the intensification of immigration, European policy has evolved in recent years, the field being an open one. The main purpose of the article is to highlight the essential aspects of immigration at European Union level in accordance with the principle of solidarity. Immigration management is a central activity of sovereign states. As in the European Union, the supranational level has contributed to the application of the principle of solidarity. The European Union is at a turning point. The directions adopted at European regional level require an analysis, at the heart of which is the principle of solidarity.Despite the contradictions at the level of the European Union regarding the management of the process of mobility of people, the political agenda develops clear directions, and the official political vision is to encourage the phenomenon of legal migration and discourage illegal migration. The Common Immigration Policy pursues several objectives, that of managing migration flows, treating third-country nationals in an equitable manner, and preventing and combating illegal immigration and trafficking in human beings. Solidarity is a key word in the management of immigration, as all the European Union's objectives in this area require a shared responsibility of all Member States. Thus, cooperation between states is vital. Without cooperation and solidarity the joint project will face difficulties and cannot be implemented effectively. Firmness and solidarity, as well as shared responsibility, are the key words for European policy on managing migration in the European Union.
